Girondins monument / Monument aux Girondins (1)

Later I shall publish here an article about the symbolic meanings of the different parts of this monument.
For the moment: have you ever seen statues with such "real life" in them?

When you reach this monument from the nearby tramway stop or the tourist office, there is a very nice and good and not at all expensive restaurant at your left, corner Rue Château Trompette. Lunch is best there. And btw, coming from the same direction, at the other side of the monument you find a snack bar that serves real nice spicy sausages (merguez) with french fries and an extremely good hamburger.
